Peter Melville is Associate Professor at The University of Winnipeg, where he teaches courses on Romanticism, Critical Theory, and Fantasy Fiction.

He is currently engaged in two research projects: the first focuses on figures of refuge in the novels of William Godwin and Mary Shelley; while the second considers aspects of disability, sexuality, shame, and class warfare in contemporary epic fantasy, including the novels of Stephen Donaldson, Brandon Sanderson, and Robin Hobb.
